EFHW-16040-2K Multiband band End Fed Half Wave Antenna
This is an End-Fed Half-Wave (EFHW*) antenna for 160/80/60/40m. Unlike many END FED antennas on the market, this one does not require the Antenna Tuner to operate. It is a resonant Half wave on 160m (1.8MHz) therefore also resonant on the second harmonic of 3.6MHz, the third harmonic of 5.4MHz and fourth harmonic of 7.2MHz.
*This is perfect antenna for DX-ers
Various installations such as horizontal, vertical, as inverted V, as inverted L, zigzag etc. are possible.
NOTE: the minimum height for horizontal portion of the antenna is 0.1 wavelength above ground (~50 feet or 15 meters for 160M band)
- NO TUNER needed!
- NO counterpoise needed! (Grounding recommended)
